How to: Social Media Buttons

I just realized recently, I needed social media buttons at the top of my page to make it easier to find my other social media outlets. I wanted to make it pretty easy, so since I worked on a couple of these...I wanted to share it with you!

Here is how you would add social media buttons!

Go into your dashboard, and click add a gadget. Then the html gadget.

Now is the fun part. I made some coral colored buttons you are welcome to use, but if not, just make your own and insert them into this little formula below:
If you want to coral buttons, leave the GREEN script. If not, replace the GREEN script with the url of the image you want.
The RED script should be replaced with YOUR url, that you want that button to link to:
